Connecting with Communities by Helping Others
It was Aldrich who founded the Children’s Hope Residential Services in the year 2002. This is a kind of a nonprofit organization that offers support and also care for those adolescents who were abused and also neglected. They are put in the children’s protective services especially for those who were struggling with their behaviors and emotions. Since this was founded, this non-profit organization has already helped more than 2,000 children in Texas.
The residential life program is providing 24-hour care at three individual centers for treatment. Know that each center comes with a specialized care team that would include therapists, health professionals, direct care counselors, administrative staff and case managers. The care team would actually make sure that each child is really taken care of and has that safe as well as supportive environment to process such trauma that they have encountered. Children would also join in those therapeutic programs in order to help them learn the basic skills and to be able to form such healthy relationships with the peers as well as the caregivers.
There is also foster care in the Children’s Hope Residential Services. Such foster children are assisted to cope with the trauma and for them to be able to heal. There are many of those who were actually neglected or those who were abused and they have then lost the trust in other individuals. By healthy as well as functional parenting and also with the help of peer relationships, such program would help in rebuilding such trust in every child.
There are also the day treatment programs that would help the children who require more care as well as support than the outpatient program but don’t require such residential care. Such children in this type of program must join those psycho-educational groups which teach the coping skills, drug education and that stress management and also such weekly individual therapy sessions and also those psychiatrist evaluations too.
There are the aftercare services as well. Such Children’s Hope Residential Services would provide those aftercare services to the children and their families who have already finished the program. These services are offered to the people in the community who would participate in the group, family and those individual therapy sessions.
Connecting with communities through the programs offered by such organization would surely help a lot of individuals out there who have suffered and been through a lot of things in their life. Such program and organization has certainly assisted a lot of those children who were feeling traumatized because of the negative experiences that they have had. It is best that the children who were suffering from those traumatic experiences be sent and go through the programs in order for them to heal and be able to live a normal life as a child.
